    Do you deal exclusively in strawmen? Do you get your rocks off on taking other people's words, changing said words, and then throwing those new, different words back at them?

    What did you mean then by "Tell the Swedes that"?

    Sweden practices a good deal of socialism. Has it "failed" there? Simple yes or no question. And when you answer "no," which is the correct answer, then we can move on from this idiotic tangent.

    A Scandinavian economist once said to Milton Friedman, ‘In Scandinavia, we have no poverty’. Milton Friedman replied, ‘That’s interesting, because in America, among Scandinavians, we have no poverty, either’.
    You may not understand this but culture counts.

    Your condescension is duly noted.

    We weren't talking about culture. J-Mac made a ridiculously oversimplified statement, I provided a counter example. That's it. Go find someone else to annoy.

    What are your thoughts as to this type of bullying by the extreme left?
    I don't understand how you're against this. I thought conservatives were all about tradition?
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Perhaps this misunderstanding is why there are many rifts occurring among the American people.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    There hasn't been a "pure socialist" society in recent history.
